Digital printing method that uses ultraviolet light to dry the ink as soon as it hits the surface to be printed. This results in fine-detail printing which does not allow the ink to spread. It’s also more eco-friendly when compared to traditional printing since it does not use solvent inks and therefore, does not release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere.
Lithography process that works by transferring an inked image from a metal plate to a rubber plate and then to the final surface. It is known as ‘offset’ since it does not transfer the ink directly to the final surface (usually paper).
Epoxy / Doming
This method is suitable for creating a 3D version of the image / logo. An epoxy or resin is used to fill a mould that captures the image to be printed. The sticker is applied with a transparent coating.
Sometimes known as thermal printing, heat transfer printing uses heat to transfer an image to the final printing surface. The image is made in wax on a special transfer paper which melts away when heat is applied.
Similar to heat transfer printing but uses heat to fuse fabric and ink together. A design is printed onto a special transfer paper with special ink. Under heat, these inks turn into gas and get permanently printed onto the surface.
Laser is a light-emitting device and laser printing uses this light to engrave the printed surface. There are no inks involved in this method of printing. Simply put, it ‘burns’ the image onto the surface.
Screen Print or Silk Screen
At one point of time, silk was used in this method of printing and therefore, the name serigraphy or silk screen printing! Today, an image is pressed through nylon (or other materials) mesh onto the surface. It is a process of applying a direct imprint.
Pretty straightforward! This method uses threads of various kinds to stitch an image / logo onto the surface.
Embossing / De-bossing
Embossing is when the image or logo is raised from the printed surface and debossing is the opposite - the image sinks into the printed surface. The method is executed by casting a metal die for the image. This die is then heat-pressed onto the surface.
Uses a silicone pad which has a transfer of an inked image. This thin & flexible pad is then pressed onto the final surface. Works effectively for rounded objects.
Foiling or Hot Stamping
Debossing (when the image is ‘sunk’ into the surface) is sometimes given a metallic finish and this is done using the hot stamping or foiling method. It is done by placing a layer of metallic foil between the dye and the surface to be printed.
